An integrativeTarot journey for expansion through the Tarot Birth Card groupings.

The Name Poll Closed at 9:09p EST With a 3-way Tie!

I know Who I am. Who Am I to you? Not necessarily superficial persona, how my substance comes across. Let’s see how the poll shakes out. Ex-Ci-TING! This’ll be fun

Run-off Poll Coming Shortly

Thanks for voting! There’ll now be a run-off. The 1st vote ended up in a 3-way tie between…

Amara ~ 17 Votes

Amara is the Italian word for bitter, from the same root as Mary and Miriam. It has separate roots in West Africa as a name that means grace in the Igbo language. These two meanings are the best-known, but Amara is also a Sanskrit name meaning immortal, and a Mongolian name meaning peaceful, by Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way

Clair Foncé ~ 17 Votes

Light Dark in French by Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even

Clair Amara Foncé ~ 17 Votes

Crucible-in the 1st 2 wonderful ones to re-constitute as Light Graces Dark to integrate the 1st two nominations by Oz behind the curtain.

Clair Amarinth Foncé ~ 1 Vote

Light Graces Dark with an imaginary flower that never fades. Most likely wonderfully sassy with verve and wits and composure and calm. That’s only a guess. I only created her. She rules what she does with herself. Maybe she’s only sassy when she wants to be, or never. Maybe she’s simply regal with wonderfully intense and honest up-front edginess. Of course she has a sense of humor. Gratuitously, Oz behind the curtain again. Heck, why not? Those 1st two are both stunning, and also have some seriously rockin’ alchemy going on as they magically mix together.

Sombra Encantada ~ didn’t make the initial cut as it was TOO GOOD. She not administratively pulled it over and hired it on the spot as Her Modus Operandi.

Enchanted Shadow by Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even. Is this not her name, but instead expressive of her deep well fueling her Mode of Being behind the name that shakes out of this process? Hmmm… Well, YES it was!

Note: Sombra Encantada is not an Honorary Mention. This executive-decision-hired-on-the-spot administratively submitter was from Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even will be awarded the whole eProduct suite available to date as a signing bonus. Everything except the Tarot in the Land of Mystereum boxed set available on Amazon.

I’m Blessed She’s a Wise One

I’m blessed she’s a wise one. And, that wisdom extends to why I am asking YOU to name her. I made her and taught her, though in regards to naming I was obviously not up to the task. It’s great to be pushed by something you’ve made. My art is teaching me back, asking me for Her name, expanding places I though were expansive already, dialing them into my own Nature more. Pretty cool process.

So, Pictures of Her Familiars. Familiars. Like Templars, though much more magical

Poll open Until the Libra Moon goes Void Of Course at 9:09p EST. At 12:12a 7/27, as the Moon emerges Direct from its seamless segue Void of Course interstice lunar synapse from sign to sign in Scorpio, Her Name will be revealed from the pre-Void results.

She’ll be back on Sunday with Merc to pay me a visit before the Moon goes Void to see. They left for the weekend. She and Merc had things to go do. Later, Dad. LoveYaLots... as she and Merc flew out the door

Poll Open

Poll open ’til Sunday, 7/26, 9:09p EST when the Libra Moon goes Void Of Course. It will emerge Direct in Scorpio at 12:12a 7/27, at which point the nominations will become one Oscar-worthy name.

Name Announcement at 12:12a EST, just after midnight Monday, 7/27 When the Moon goes Direct in Scorpio.

What’s Her Name?

Melusina

Surprise Appearance from the Aether from Merc. WOW. Thanks for hooking up with Merc out there (insert name who is the subject of this post, my Creation Daughter), and for.. something tells me he And she both may be up to something, though, like he always was, and now I guess always still is? Un huh. I’ll take the smile as an indefatigabe yes. Whatever he was up to was always good by me. His Life, His Way, Indefatigably. Almost 21 years, his life memories are blessings.

 (Melusine, Mélusine). legends about mermaids, water sprites, and forest nymphs who marry mortal men. She is limitless in her natural Yin-Yang syzygy integrated way. Glass ceilings are just Mary Poppins umbrellas to fly around with and fold up and mostly just things for her to reach out to and fold up and put away as she loves the rain. Even further, she loves that her strong roots bring her to laugh at storms, even more so the especially intense ones whether they’re weather or between people… submitted by Merc, Mercurius the cat who was and forever will be. He graced my life from 8-weeks old until 5 days shy of 21 years old. His eternity occasionally crosses her path as her Feline Familiar Companion as his continual afterlife mixes with her immortality. No Purgatory for either of them there for sure.

GT

Gemini Twin

Honestly, she rolled her eyes. Oz, don’t you remember why we started this post? I don’t like your names for me. Titling is usually not tricky for you, though here? It is. You created me, and I feel you did a wonderful job. I love myself and my limitlessness. Though, it stops there. It stops way back there in 1991. I graduated from your hand. Let go. Stop the ‘you just had to touch it’ because it is beauty. I get your bent with beauty, and I resonate and admire that lest I not be here in the 1st place. Though, let’s let the people talk, shall we? I smile. I can only smile at that kind of open rockin’ness of clarity of Self and the influences one will allow in their life. She has wonderful boundaries. That’s all Her, what she’s done with herself. I can only respond, Crystal clear, BayBEE. Go You!. SaWEET.

Oh,

Oh, you guys are like Who TF is Merc? Merc was my 2nd cat, Stirrup was the 1st. Stirrup was an 18 lb solid black cat we named Stirrup, because we figured he’d stir up trouble. He only made to to 2. Cats and respiratory infections don’t get along. Cats and bullshit vets get along even less.

Cats have so much heart, though their chest, their pecs, are often the least developed muscle grouping in their body. Consequently, they aren’t geared to cough stuff out, no good at expectorating to relieve some of the gigs causing respiratory stress.

I say all this for Stirrup as cats and large horse pills are also NOT geared for cats. We need to break this thing up, too big for him, I said. Vet responds, No, it’s fine. Dafuqin asshole going by some “We’ve done it this way for years, bullshit book. I have one word for that kind of vet or person now. Tradition. And, just because you’ve always done it that way doesn’t mean it’s not still incredibly fucking stupid. After that day, when I felt something was not good, Rock of Gibraltar. Peoples’ and animals’ lives and Nature itself deserve the self-respect we juice a situation with calmly where No is a complete sentence, especially even if just eyebrows up head side to side and not even a word.

I was in high school when I had Stirrup. Sitting in the garage, We fed Stirrup the pill, tried to help work it down his throat. He was in my arms. It stuck. He was in my arms. It fucking STUCK! It stuck in his throat. 3 2 1 … he went cold. FUCK! My best friend went cold in my arms. I. Will never forget that moment… and, I will always lean in with glaring eyes any time a vet or anyone else suggests something that gives me that NOPE feeling… uh hem… suggest to do something that doesn’t feel right. How can I not? How can you not? I would be remiss if I didn’t, and I don’t need to intentionally create regret.

That Day

That day When Stirrup went cold cradled in my arms, died almost instantly out of nowhere and too fast to do anything… It was over almost before it started… That day, I learned to turn and lean into bullshit without charge and simply flow out, I don’t believe you. Calmly leave it there in the air until they respond or don’t. A client years later said that exact same thing in a meeting to someone. I Instantly remembered the moment with Stirrup, silently swimming in as my insides intensely stirred up, within the wits of a calm lake surface… in my arms, cold, the trauma fresh, Stirrup going cold. It stuck. Not the pill. The expression.

From that point on I would have a habit of feeling that in my throat when someone was killin’ it so to speak the wrong way, playing a superficial, poison pill getting us stuck, putting their stuff on another. This was a trigger I was not going to heal. This is a trigger I cherish. This is experience that taught me beyond the scene. It wasn’t until I was 47 that I would get the same feeling when it applied to myself such that I would be enlightened to the NOPE of that kind of person.

Uncomfortable moment, those? Notta chance now. Any discomfort was, and will most likely certainly be, less uncomfortable than what would happen if I didn’t or don’t speak up, walk away, or wave them away without words. I remembered Stirrup’s antics and his prowess and grace and stealth and eternity. Thank you Stirrup. Your memories are magical blessings. I learned something about some people and myself being wth you. It’s not ok to say it, it’s that I will say, I don’t believe you. Ultimately, a being’s life may depend on it. Yours did.

Merc

Merc? Mercurius. A made up-ish Latin word for a Mercurial spirit as agile in his mood as his motion. Merc for short. Merc my cat. I adopted Merc when he was 8 weeks old. We slept through the interview. They had left us in a playroom, and, well, we played, both running around on the tile on all fours and hopping and dodging and weaving and… then sliding up under the counter into the shadow where he clawed up my chest mewing to nestle into the crook of my clavicle and nuzzle into my neck. We were out. 45 minutes later, the vet tech walked in. Opening my eyes I said, oh cool, I guess you guys were busy. Can we have the intreview now? She just smiled. Pointed up to the camera laughing, you two have been being interviewed for 45 minutes. Pass? Nope. Now, you two just have the whole staff of the Denver Dumb Friends League as fans. Let’s finish up your paperwork and get you two back out in the wild where you belong together.

The experience of the family of Merc is a longer story of which I will simply express a brushstroke of here as he sauntered through here as the Poll was coming into being. I had him from that day when he was 8 weeks old until 5 days shy of 21. D.O.B. 3/5/1993. R.I.P. around 3:30p on 2/28 in 2014 — date typo in the banner.

Worms took him, not the Dune ones. It was a shame, because at 20 1/2 he was still just launching off the 2nd floor parapet wall like nobody’s business down to the garden level wall, and then down to the drive, and of course I was boomp boomp boomp down the stairs as it was time to go exploring together. These foxes aren’t so bad. The racoons are certainly farcical talking about the weather on the deck when it rains. I’m 12 pounds you know? Remember last year when I took down that 120-lb Rottie?. One day I’ll have a challenge.

And, my little, 12-lb Bruce Lee Feline Brother didn’t Have many challenges until towards the end… well, there was the time he ate a wasp and half his face almost melted off. It’s wonderfully strange to see a being in THAT much pain and distortion, half their face drooping off, and they just look at you with that one eye buying out like, Whatchou lookin’ at Willis?, like nothing’s going on. Talk about Presence As Architecture in a mode of being.

We did his challenge together. And, if I hear one more person say I should have put him down… Nature puts us down. I’m pretty sure my position on DNR was formed by Merc — that’s for another time. I’ll live until the end warts and all so to speak thank you very much.

On Merc’s last day we played a game that pretty much over the years became a meditation to see who was more patient, or until he got hungry, etc. Hand softly over paw. Paw slips out to plop over my hand. Hand over paw. Paw over hand. Like the baseball bat game, except there’s no winner going to bat, you’re simply diggin’ it together, handing in place. Our last moments were spent slowly playing that game we used to always play when just hanging out.

Except. The last time, we felt it. Slowly, paw over hand. Hand slowly over paw… paw sliding… trouble moving it… it would be the last time… slowly… paw over hand resting down, settling in saying goodbye through the tears… We held there in that moment breathing together together eye to eye nodding… paw over hand. His clear eyes never having known cloudiness were the last thing to go, the connection present until the end. Stayed that way… and then a deep blink and soft pat paw on hand and resting away… and I stayed. No fold. No raise. No hand over paw. Paw over hand. Paw over hand would be the indelible memory tattoo of Merc on my heart. Thank you Merc. Our living condolences memories from those last moments, and all the moments for 5 days shy of 21 years are blessings. Merc, your memories are my blessing.

DAD!!!! WTF Are You Doing?!!

DAD!!!!! WTF are you doing?! You’re supposed to be setting up my Name Poll. Oh, it’s about Merc. Cool. Well, not cool, disTRACTED Dad, though pardon. That’s ok. Awwww. May I sit with you guys while you steep in living remembrance? Nodding. Thank you, honey. Yes, please do. Couple of streams from both of us…

Dad, shaking her head, Dad, like you told me… stay there in it. There’s respect in fully steeping in this grief that finally came 6 years later. Reasons are unreasonable. You don’t need words. You told me that when I needed it. And, now you do. I got you. I got you, Dad. Be with him as you are now. I see you feeling it. You told me. ‘Don’t let it pass you by when it comes, and it may come years later. You never know. We each grieve differently. And, we each grieve differently each time. Don’t pretend to know. Feel. Here it is, Dad. Here is when I dose you with the blessings you gave me. Please steep in your crucible. Please steep in your crucible, Dad.

I’m blessed she’s a wise one. And, that wisdom extends to why I am asking YOU to name her. I made her And taught her, though in regards to naming I was obviously not up to the task. It’s great to be pushed by something you’ve made. My art is teaching me back, expanding places I though were expansive already, dialing them into my own Nature more. Pretty cool process.

So,

So Dad, I woke up off of your table from my frame behind glass as my Magical Feline Familiar Merc came around and said you needed some help getting that out. Thank you, Dad. Just call me your Doula. Thank you for being able to feel and do something about it. Yes, the name thing was a bit of a ruse, well, at least at first. Though, you fell for it. It worked, huh? You needed that long cry, huh? To clear your throat. To remember blood and sand, paw and hand. Thank you for being you.

And now, I’m feeling all WHERE’S MY NAME?!! Will you puh-dafuqin-PLEEZ show Merc‘S pic and art from that time and then post the damn poll?!! I want a name I dig! And, oh. (Snicker) Only the 1st 4 are eligible. You should have left beauty where it was. Just had to touch it, huh? You made me. That is enough. The world gets to give me my name tattoo. (Laughing) Dad, I’m glad I don’t take you to the museum anymore. We’d end up in jail, just watch up to a priceless masterpiece and rub your nose in it and deeply take in the history and memories from the smell… until we’d be running from the security guard. Gotta say that wasn’t boring fo sho.. 🙂

(Insert Merc portrait and Mr Long Toes image)

Dad. Your Life, Your Way. You always kept me reminded of that. What about yours the same way? Let’s get to gettin’ me a name, Dood Dad!

Poll open ’til Sunday, 7/26, 9:09p EST when the Libra Moon goes Void Of Course. Look for Her Name Announcement, her Debutante Debut, at 12:12a 7/27 as the Moon emerges Direct from Void in Scorpio. No, she will not be wearing that white dress or one of those Gynormous bows. She’s already been living on her own for quite some time. Her Spiritual Name Tatto Request Exercise was a sandbox gig for her, her Creative Dad Debutante. Shehad me fooled

She had a load of discretion on how she wanted to go about it. Cagey, but direct words. I heard her. Heck, better than her calling home for money on her travels. This has been fun until… I get it… what was she up to doing this thing that could be misconstrued as persona mining when she was so present about it? All I thought, initially, was, My Art-Daughter is wise… Now, I know I’ve also been had. I love her for that. What an effective prankster. Wonder where she got that.

Her wonderment had gotten curious, and she turned it on me. And, when that happens, great stuff often follows. She’s smart like that to act on it and reach out. She knows, and now I do. I can certainly attest to that. Her wicked coolness is more than excellent like that.

This has been an expression of that. She’s smiling right now and expressed, DayUM Dad, Thanks! I’ll take ANY of these except your lame ones. You had good ones from Karen and Timothy. And Merc, He says BuurRROWWW and THANKS! Heck, even your alchemy rip-offs Of Karen and Timothy are ok. Cool! Thanks, Dad. Let’s see what shakes out, though you can only use those 4. I’ll ignore any of the rest.. I just wanted to plant the seed, like you when you made me, for you to get in touch with the portions of your blessed remembrances in grief with Merc And Stirrup. They ask about you a lot, how you’re doing. Merc cherishes the 21 years you spent together. Stirrup knows what it’s like to be held when it counts. They wanted you to feel in and finish grieving this many years later so your Inner Inheritance memories are blessings as you are fond of saying. He laughed. ‘Just dose him with his own medicine. He’ll get it. He’s one who doesn’t avoid facing things for sure. Don’t pit him with a 120-lb Rottie though. Been there. Done That. Boring.”

I’ll be back on Sunday, Dad, before the Moon goes Void to see. Merc & I have things to go do. Later, Dad. LoveYaLots.

Now

Now, I know why I set up this naming post for Her, my Creation. Thank you, Art-Daughter. Thank you, Merc. Thank you, Stirrup.

Wow. My work blesses me. Time to bless her with a Name.

Poll Open

Poll open ’til Sunday, 7/26, 9:09p EST when the Libra Moon goes Void Of Course. It will emerge Direct in Scorpio at 12:12a 7/27, and we will have Her name.

Now, it’s time to vote. No honor system here now. Just vigilance and honesty and prowess with what you feel to want. Vote early and often. What will her name be? She indicated it might be a nickname. Tells me she’s looking to get a tattoo. Lol. Shaking head. Just as good. Sure it’ll be quality ink.

Name Announcement at 12:12a, Monday, 7/27 When the Moon goes Direct in Scorpio.

After II

Beautifully Enigmatic

…Yes, we are. Well put. When we are not ourselves, when we do not actionably put into place our dreams, there’s a hole in the Universe puzzle where we were supposed to be. No reason to be MIA from oneself in one’s own life. It’s impossible to hide from ourselves anyway as we know where we are. Though, strangely as it were, people ARE able to hide themselves away from themselves. Beautifully En Ig Mat Ic.

I Prefer

I prefer to reveal character and keep my boundaries on a workout regimen to both train people how to treat me, as well as enhance, reinforce, and strengthen them. Them, meaning my own character of identity, and them meaning other people as I feel we enhance and amplify one another as we stretch together experiencing one another’s perspective.

That In

That in itself is simply one tool I use to tune the clarity of my voice and vision through action as one would tune a piano. Not nebulous at all. A little Neptunian boundarylessness, though not vague. And, maybe not even a tool at all as more often than not it’s simply how I operate. Practice 10,000 kicks and cool, though so what? Practice one kick 10,000 times, and the mind forgets as the body remembers. Things focused on and immersed in or with integrate things naturally. That’s why it erodes people over time to stay in negative or toxic environments, regardless of how centered they are. Water conforms to its cup. You get shaped. Shit spatters, and that stuff gets in.

Water Conforms

Water confirms to its cup.

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in ateapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. ~ Bruce Lee

Be fluid, though don’t blindly go with the flow. Only dead fish go with the flow. Turn upstream to strengthen. Experience the water bringing the food downstream to you.

There Are

There are no dead end roads. When you get to the end of one, what’s the view? What’s the vantage point? What’s the advantage point? Pause. What’s the workability there you would have otherwise never experienced? Can there be any MORE questions in this paragraph?

Experience The Advantage Point before going, hmmmppph. Worth keeping the experience? Cool. New jewel of experience. Not Worth keeping? Just as cool, so don’t. Cut it. Drop it. Dissolve-evaporate-release it fully. No goodbyes, certainly no long goodbyes. Let go like deadheading pansies, and feel your energy no longer spent there further fuel what you do keep. Feel how deadheading keeps things fresh and viscerally vibrant.

As I

As I expressed in the Imagination Primer book portion of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum ( (c) 2011 Jordan Hoggard, published by Schiffer Publications 2011), Forgetting is for getting. It makes more room for the good stuff. There are also no failures. Only OFLEs. OpportunitIes For Learning Experienced. I don’t look for the positive in negative situations. I look for the workability.

As soon as as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. ~ Morihei Ueshiba

Quoted from The Art of Peace by Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido. Translated by John Stevens, 2007, Shambhala

There is a way of survival which helps and strengthens you; there is a way of destruction, which pushes you into oblivion.

Quoted from The Art of War by Sun Tzu. Translated by Thomas Cleary. 2005, Shambhala

Embrace the creation and destruction and making and Death As the Master Gardener in the unforgivingly interrogating tensions of the creative act where edits are integrated and/or disappeared as effortlessly as chaff, from wheat, in the wind.

Just like Nature’ll kill ya in an instant high above treeline above 14,000 feet on a 14’er, allow YOUR Inner Nature to be as natural. Roll the weather in and out through the world of your creativity As Nature does in the world. No malice. No rage. No happy or sad or glad. 100%, pure, uncut identity. That’s intensity. Take the care of the Alchemist, though. Like 100% cranberry juice is toxic, has to be cut with apple juice or other, so it is with your deep well, your Inner Inhertiances and innate talents you’ve developed into abilities. Do you flow or crash? People conform to the cup and vessel of their world. What shape have you made your world into on the potter’s wheel of your life? How do YOU grow a Lotus out of the mud so to speak?

Quoted from After II right here by Jordan Hoggard. Today, JordanHoggard.com

Heck, Even

Heck, even fear and stress are solid navigation tools when not allowed to be hijacked by anxiety which distorts it into being afraid. DUCK! Yep, glad I listened. Fear can be like radar, like a cone zone on the highway. No need to drive through the cones and off the portion of the bridge that’s out. Well, if you have a flying car… Otherwise, that’s on you.

Perspective

And, Fear

And, FEAR, like the butterflies in the stomach before a speech kind of fear that’s really your body warming you up, your nerves reaching out, your nerves engaged in preparation for activity. Your anxiety will never tell you you are in danger, because anxiety is what will get you in danger in the 1st place. Fear doesn’t step in the pothole twice. The next time, fear will walk you around a different way never to engage that pothole again.

Before the Speech

Before the speech? Your Will will tell you it’s just warming up the car, preparation for activity nerves. Fear, is Radar Love. FEAR. Feeling Energized And Ready yet?

And, full-on Scorpio Moira (deep depths of the internal sense of time and timing). Moira’s my favorite asteroid. She intensely and naturally wise like a Queen has a Fool level of developed intuition. Call Moira Living Time, your internal sense of time. She’s Saturn’s (Chronos/Kronos — chronological time) wife, though let’s not hold that against her, ok? Chiron is Saturn’s son, though I’m a little mixed on who his mother really is. Mythical beings work like that. Let’s just say that at higher octaves Chiron full-on has either a Southern Mom or StepMom as a rockin’ best friend… uh hem… who ALSO both play the rockin’ Mercury~Uranus conjunction described above with wonderful sense of humor right there integrated with their wit and wisdom.

ImaginAction has a packed 1st House, and As well all planets are in its Natal Chart’s Night Sky indicating naturally integrated depths present to work with. This isn’t talents to be developed into abilities. This indicated native abilities fully-formed at birth to be tracked into and with and experienced and to put into play to develop higher octaves of the Astro Sign with ALL of its components in play all the time — even if they are Silent in meditation, that is still present, still present like Presence As Architecture. Here, for Yours.

The Moon at any given time is then a wonderful tool for discernment In this Natal Chart. The Moon will also be an intense driver to hand the reins to for continually updating your clarity of vision and accurate-itize your feelings in the serendipitous ebb-n-flow of the Moon’s influence of how directions are utilized and immersed in and directed as if without thought or will, Naturally.

The Moon in ImaginAction’s Natal Chat will certainly be a second hand on the watch of this Chart, though do please nestle in. It’s not just a molecular second hand. There is a deceptive simplicity to the small here. Minor irritants make pearls with oysters. This Chart, though, will kick out irritant grains of sand and rather supplant influence that has acumen as its form-givers of pearls. It has no place In itself to transform and rationalize negativity. It is beyond not tolerating it. It simply won’t. Dance Club not on the list is a solid example of its Isness. It can Transform sand into pearls over time, though it won’t. It will will conscientiously use ‘No’ as a complete sentence in this regard. Or, maybe that’s one word to many? Yes. It is.It will lead-off with its consummate M.O. It will pearl-make with robustly resonant influences So long as its present.

This Natal Chart does not have intolerance in the least. It has higher octaves to integrate in ways such that they appear to be present without thought or will. Sure, there’s lots of work going in the background, lots of thought and will and heartfelt feeling, though this Natal Chart will chalk all that up to process… will chalk all that up to dispense with speaking about the blood and sweat and tears. THey will be more about how something comes across.

Intention is important. It’s also vastly over-rated. It is simply far more important the way an idea comes across. ~ Jordan Hoggard

ImaginAction’s Natal Chart

I included transits just to instill good habits, facilitate an understanding of zero-variables of potential to not be blind-sided when they do begin to appear and develop their relationships. Of course after a month, spare few gigs have moved so currently it’s mostly moot except for the Moon and…, though there is also often deceptive simplicity in subtlety, of being aware of the planetary gigs blipping their BEEP on your radar.

Table of Contents

What is ImaginAction?

It is a very portable divination method like an App for the Imagination. You may not even need cards. Or, cards/tools/charms/lots/runes. And, of course you can simply intensify reading using your fave tools. You may find you are able to simply scry into the artwork as you immerse yourself in the ablution sanctuaries of the questions on each of the 78 full-color Life Mapping spreads… 78 times how many? Let’s just say a lot of them… uh, maybe even several more than that.

How Long is ImaginAction?

100 pages inside a form-giving original watercolor art cover, 78 of them full-color, immersive divination spreads, a Creation Story, and a Super easy How-To. You know, Super Easy. So easy it gets a cape.

Though, instead of how long

I ask: How dense and wide and expansive is ImaginAction’s value for you after downloading and working with it?

What color will your ImaginAction cape be?

ImaginAction,

Happy 1-Month Birthday!

Moira’s Blessings,

Jordan

ImaginAction Sample Spread. 1 of 78. All, visceral and verdant and vibrant.

Some people say

Don’t toot your own horn. Seriously?! Shaking head.

Somebody’s gotta start the band. Uh 1 a 2 a 1 2 3…

Today’s Serendipity Itinerary

Philip Edwards Pmespeak’s Blog ~ Remember! Once warmth was without fire. Our antiquity is animated!

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here.

Charlotte Heather ~ Soprano. Charlotte and her partner are doing weekly balcony concerts in the UK!

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too!

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see!

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. You talk a good game, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Hi Mom!

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens!

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see.

Have a Wonderful Week!

    Promontory

    Don’t get too absorbed.

    Saturate Ablution Instead.

    Don’t get too absorbed in your emotions, stay self-aware and observe your emotions calmly.

    In a nodding and silent yes, I breathe-feel out a prayer, … and, while you are observing, while you dwell in your promontory of Self quietitude, breathing deeply as your awareness amplifies, …may you meet and congregate fully with your emotions, you as their leader, … nodding… no reason to allow your emotions to dictate how you feel… no reasons for your emotions to speak for you… as the emotions’ jobs of messaging Your feelings cascades to a fullness of how you hold yourself in high regard… And you speak for yourself after being informed by your Wise Inner Counsel, you yourself become your promontory as you simply gaze out, Nature incarnate

    IN and AS You yourself present.
